We've been busy this morning - busy making a cake for Grandad! I was going to make just a round one, but then decided on doing something different! Inspired by a visit to a well-known supermarket a couple of months ago, when the kids spotted an armchair cake, but I wasn't prepared to fork out the price!!!
If you want to see a couple more pics of the cake in the making, or should I say baking!!, keep looking down!!!
It started life as an oblong, then cut in half, and one half had a slither cut off the edge, which was then cut in two to make the arms.
Now covered in butter icing. I was going to use a fondant, but didn't have all the ingredients. Never mind!
The kids made "Grandad" and his remote, and tv (what does that say about my parents!!!??)
Enjoy - we definitely will!!
Now I'm off to make some Borscht with some beetroot from the garden!
